When you install a FireWire card, Windows XP automatically creates a
"1394 Connection" for networking via FireWire. The "unplugged" message
is probably for the new 1394 connection, not for the Ethernet
Since you're not using the 1394 card for networking, go to
Control Panel > Network Connections and disable the 1394 Connection.
